I am 21 years old and a student. I have been suffering from lower back and right buttock pain ( also at times down my right thigh) for 8 months now. Sitting and standing for an hour triggers pain in my back.
I was advised to take an MRI and my MRI report says "a mild diffuse disk bulges at L4-L5 and L5-S1. No major decompression". Doctor says it is manageable with the core strengthening exercises. Is it?
I had a plan to join a mountaineering institute within 1-2 years after my graduation. I want to know whether I have any hope of completely releiving my back from this condition as it is necessary to pursue my dreams. Expecting valuable advices.
